As part of the Heritage Open Days national celebration of 50 years of Conservation Areas, there will be a chance to look back to the work of local volunteers which led to the formation of Grenoside Conservation Society and to some of its achievements.
An evening event is planned at the Reading Room for Thursday 7th September at 7.30pm. It is hoped that past and present members of the Society and others who have contributed to its work will be able to attend and contribute their own memories.
David Dulieu, a founder member, and current chair Megan Smith will introduce the evening. They will recall some of the leading figures from the earlier years as well as activities which have left their mark on the village. These include building the Great Wall of Grenoside, establishing Grenoside Green and the longstanding work programme which has helped enhance the local woodlands. There will be a small display of pictures from the past and additional items for display will be welcomed.
Anyone who is interested in finding out more about the work of the Society or contributing to our practical conservation work, will find the evening informative. New members are always welcome. For further information, please contact David (0114 2468757) or Megan (0114 246 7362).
